Technique for reducing average power consumption in a wireless communications device

Image Number 8 for United States Patent #6889055.

A method and system of reducing average power consumption in a wireless communication device (WCD) that operates in sleep and awake modes during monitoring of a slotted paging channel includes the steps of providing a plurality of counters; establishing a roll over point for each counter at a predetermined offset relative to each other counter; identifying a timing, point for at least one roll over point; and transitioning between the sleep and awake modes during the occurrence of an identified timing point.
